17-fret tenor 4-string banjo set up for CGDA tuning; a lower-level Bacon model. Serial 22977. It has an unbound neck, friction pegs, ctr-mount resonator with flange, nickel plating, 24 hooks, rounded L-shoes, stepped tension hoop. Waverly tailpiece & armrest. All parts are original. Hard case included.
Our senior luthier performed a setup with complete disassembly to clean & polish all parts. He installed a new Mylar head, shimmed/realigned neck angle, and dressed frets.
This instrument is part of the collection from the late Johnny Fox, sword-swallower and performer at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. We are selling it on behalf of Johnny's estate.
